INDIANAPOLIS -- Wright State University senior guard DaShaun Wood gained top honors as the Horizon League announced its men's basketball All-League Teams and specialty award winners Monday (Feb. 26). Wood was named the League Player of the Year, becoming the first player in Raider history to achieve that honor after leading Wright State to the top seed in this week's League Championship.

Regular-season co-champion and 15th-ranked Butler University took the other two main awards, as coach Todd Lickliter garnered Coach of the Year recognition and junior guard Mike Green was tabbed as the League's Newcomer of the Year. All three honors are the result of voting by League head coaches and sports information directors plus selected media representatives from throughout the League.

Wood led the Raiders to a share of the League's regular-season championship (13-3 in loop play) for the first time in WSU's 13-year tenure in the circuit. He averaged a League-best 19.4 points per game in pacing Wright State to a 21-9 overall record that includes the most victories since the program moved to Division I in 1987-88. The senior from Detroit scored 20 or more points 14 times this winter, including a season-high 32 versus Loyola University Chicago on Jan. 10, and 30 in the Raiders' victory over then-ninth-ranked Butler exactly one month later. Wood also leads the League with a rate of 1.90 steals per contest and is fifth with 3.83 assists per outing.
